Smile Makeover: Implants, crowns and Porcelain Veneers

Our patient, a "50 something" successful Cook County area businesswoman, had a high visibility profession that involved routine contact with business executives. She was becoming self conscious about her smile. Older restorations including gold onlays, porcelain with metal crowns, composite veneers and porcelain with metal bridges had all begun to fail or show signs of significant, yet normal wear.

Porcelain was fracturing off and certain wear factors reflecting a the development of a poor bite occlusion relationship. Overuse of teeth whitening compounds were affecting both her gum tissues and tooth enamel, causing additional problems of tooth sensitivity.


After consulting with the patient and providing her with several different treatment choices, it was decided that all restorative products and procedures would incorporate the use of premium porcelain materials. Her smile makeover included 10 veneers, 3 dental implants, and multiple crowns.


Not only does our patient have great looking teeth... but she is now able to smile more normally. Notice how the upper lip now travels up further, revealing a broader smile.

Smiling with confidence is now effortless for our patient. She senses it has improved her on the job functioning as a sales executive and has caused many of her acquaintances to comment on how dazzling her smile is.

Tetracycline stains that are severe, as shown in the above before photo, do not respond well to traditional teeth whitening procedures.

The patient wanted to permanently get rid of the ugly smile. A combination of premium porcelain veneers and crowns were used to create the cosmetic outcome the patient was seeking.

Large spaces and gaps between teeth can be a hereditary event or they can be caused by injury and trauma.

Orthodontics is a popular treatment that can be effective in some cases. Many patients, especially adults, prefer an alternative treatment that yields immediate permanent results that can have a very dramatic impact on cosmetic appearance.

The before photo reflects the degree of spacing between multiple teeth. Since the patient was focused primarily on the upper arch, premium porcelain components were handcrafted to replace problematic teeth and to close up spaces between adjacent teeth.

When Bette retired from teaching a few years ago, she knew that it was time for her to pursue her dream of an acting career. She started taking acting classes and performing in local theatre productions, but she felt that what she really needed to boost her confidence was a smile makeover.

Dr. Marinic was very happy to help Bette achieve her goals with high-quality porcelain veneers. He designed them carefully to make sure that they would look beautiful and natural.

Bette loves her new smile! She's been in several television commercials now, and is living her dream of being a professional actress.

Robin came in to us 2 years ago, suffering with a lot of pain and bone loss in her mouth. She had nearly given up on fixing her smile.

Dr. Marinic met with her and did a thorough exam, including a Galileos 3D CT scan, which showed him exactly what was going on with her teeth and jaw. Together, they set up a treatment plan that would result in Robin smiling again.

Robin says that the thing that she appreciates most about her treatment -- other than her new, beautiful smile -- is the friendliness with which Dr. Marinic and his team treated her. She says, "Dr. Marinic really does treat you like a friend. It's very friendly, and I actually feel close to him and his staff.

Evelyn has a beautiful smile, and Dr. Marinic has been very happy to help her keep it healthy and beautiful over the last twenty–six years.

When she first came to see Dr. Marinic, she had crowns on her top front teeth that she was not happy with, and crooked bottom teeth. Dr. Marinic replaced her top crowns with crowns that were the correctly-matched size and color, and used more crowns to help her straighten her bottom teeth.

When Evelyn cracked an incisor near the gumline, a crown was not an option. Dr. Marinic considered an implant to replace the tooth, but first checked Evelyn's medications. When her medications indicated that she was not a qualified candidate for implant surgery, Dr. Marinic instead gave Evelyn a permanent bridge. She was very happy with this restoration, saying, "Dr. Marinic is very conscious about both aesthetics and function. He is a perfectionist."
